McDonald’s Happy Meals will come with a children’s book beginning Friday.

The book, which includes an activity, will be toy in Happy Meals from January 9 through 22.

McDonald’s is working with Reading is Fundamental and HarperCollins Children’s Books on the project, which expects to distribute 17 million books to families in the United States.

“This is the latest step in our ongoing efforts to enrich the lives of families, and part of a broader book strategy to combine the fun of the Happy Meal and support of our partners to inspire more family reading time,” said Julie Wenger, senior director of U.S. marketing at McDonald’s.

The books:

  • “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” by Laura Numeroff, illustrated by Felicia Bond
  • “Big Nate: In a Class by Himself” by Lincoln Peirce
  • “Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses” by Kimberly and James Dean
  • “Flat Stanley Goes Camping” by Jeff Brown, illustrated by Macky Pamintuan
